Wisconsin Teen Missing For Months Since Parents’ Murder Found Alive, Police Say

Wisconsin Teen Missing For Months Since Parents’ Murder Found Alive, Police Say

The Barron County Sheriff's Department says Jayme Closs, 13, has been found alive by the Douglas County Sheriff's Department in the northwest corner of Wisconsin.

Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said the sheriff's office in Douglas County, about 110 kilometres north of Barron County, located the girl.

Jayme's parents James, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, were found dead at their home in rural Barron early Monday, October 15, with their daughter's disappearance prompting an Amber Alert later that day.

Sue Allard, Jayme's aunt, told the newspaper she could barely express her joy after hearing the news.

Within three days after Jayme went missing more than 400 tips were received, but none at that time led to her location, and no viable suspects were identified. He described the area as a small-town development with single-family, cabin-like homes. She asks people to continue to pray for "Jayme's well-being and our families healing".

A Wisconsin couple is describing the dramatic moments when a neighbor pounded on their door to say she had stumbled across Jayme Closs, a 13-year-old girl who had been missing almost three months. "There is a heavy law enforcement presence near Walworth Co but it is not related to Jayme Closs".

A Wisconsin teenager who went missing after her parents were found shot to death inside their home was found safe on Thursday, police said.

Despite a mysterious inaudible 911 call made from her mother's cell at 12.54am, when police arrived at 12.58am, they revealed there was no sign that Jayme resisted her abductor.

Searches of her social media, cell phone and computer have offered no evidence of a boyfriend or anyone she met anyone online who might have targeted her or her parents. Closs approached her and told her that she needed help.

"I honestly still think I'm dreaming right now".

Barron Mayor Ron Fladten said Thursday night he was overjoyed at learning she is alive. "It's like taking a big black cloud in the sky and getting rid of it and the sun comes out again".

"I'm going to hug her. Squeeze her", Naiberg said, his voice cracking. "She's no doubt been through just a bad ordeal. I thought today was going to be the day, and then I find out two hours later she's found and I just can not believe this".

Sources tell FOX6 News Walworth County authorities are investigating after two bodies were found on a property near Woodfield Court and Highway J in East Troy.
